Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo claimed his second 250SX main event victory of the season at round 4 of the 2019 AMA Supercross series at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California. Cianciarulo led all 17 laps of the feature race to take the win and now sits second in the championship standings, just two points out of first.

“I’m so proud of myself today,” Cianciarulo said. “My team, myself. People know me, and they know I’m good in those harder [packed dirt] tracks, but notoriously I’ve struggled when it comes to ruts. Man, it was not pretty. I was all over the place in the whoops.The track was physically tough, physically demanding, and these guys were breathing down my neck the whole time. We gotta keep it up, gotta keep it consistent, [and] smart. We’ll try to bring this momentum into San Diego.”

Dylan Ferrandis

Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis grabbed his third second-place finish so far this season in Oakland. The French rider didn’t get the greatest of starts and was forced to work his way up to the front. He closed in on Cianciarulo on the last lap, but faded back and was not able to challenge for the lead and settled for the runner-up spot.

“It was another demanding track this weekend, but I was feeling really good [and] really comfortable,” Ferrandis said. “My speed was great, but for sure with better starts, it will be easier to win. I want more than second place, and that has had me frustrated, but I had some issues this week and didn’t train a lot. So I’m happy to be on the box here in Oakland.”

Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Colt Nichols achieved yet another podium finish, matching his third-place performance from last weekend. Nichols retains the point leader’s red plate heading into round 5 at Petco Park in San Diego, California.

“The track was just really rutty and really demanding,” Nichols said. “The heart rate was really high, so that’s what made it tough to do consistent laps. A solid podium though, can’t ever complain about that, but of course always want more. Once you’ve won that’s all you want to do, but I’ll take a third for tonight. That’s all I had, and move on to the next weekend.”

Michael Mosiman
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Michael Mosiman put his FC 250 in seventh place in Oakland. “The day was pretty good,” Mosiman said. “Practice went well and I finished really well in my heat race. In the main event, I came into the first turn really bad, about 17th, and by the end of the first lap I had made my way up to fifth. I passed into fourth for a bit, and the pace is really fast up there! It’s something I need to work on, learning to run that pace for a whole main event. I made a mistake and got together with another rider, which put me back a few spots, and I ended up making my way back to seventh, which is the best Supercross finish of my career so far. Now I have something to build off of going into San Diego next week and we’ll try to get into the top five.”Brown Dog Wilson
